Florida has always been home to big ideas. From the creation of Walt Disney World to IBM’s introduction of its first PC in Boca Raton, the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit is woven into the DNA of every Florida business owner.

The Sunshine State’s pro-business agenda, robust financial infrastructure, strong technology base and diverse workforce provide unique business advantages for companies from around the world. Florida has built an economy founded on innovation. Prosperity is our goal — for our people, our businesses and our communities.

A coalition of the state’s business leaders, including the Florida Council of 100, Enterprise Florida and the Florida Chamber of Commerce, has identified talent as the top requirement for building an innovation-based economy. Enhancing the state’s rich talent pool will feed emerging clusters, including clean technologies, life sciences, and aviation and aerospace. These technologies will create high-paying jobs for Floridians and trigger research and development, which brings new products and services to the global market and builds partnerships between our education, economic development and workforce systems. Together, these investments will establish a base that will foster growth and provide a greater quality of life for Floridians today and tomorrow.

I encourage you to learn more about the opportunities our state has to offer, and I hope you will join us as we continue our pursuit of innovation as the foundation for our future.
